For years I’ve noted how Google, while saying that we are all friends, reliably “improves” Google’s services in ways which force webmasters to eliminate their own interest in the dissemination of what they publish.

As always you are 100% right. Goolge is crushing small publishers. That latest move where the put pressure on digg to nofollow links really hurt us. When we add content to digg for free we need the link juice. Google is crushing all the small publishers.

Small publisher... just go big! You can be a big publisher in one day if you come with a great idea.

That reminds me of the 1970's when a person said that "Freedom of Speech" is for those that could afford a 100 million dollar TV starion lisence. Hey, many want to bring back the bad old days. Let us stop them. SEO is a way for minnows to compete with the sharks.

I went to digg today and it is full of spam. OK so nofollow was suppose to stop spam. Hey, guess what, it does not stop spam. However Google put pressure on DIGG. They want small publishers to be hit with nofollow.
